somehow they misplaced the eight years george bush was in office and seem to disregard everything that happened during that point like it never happened, it all began under the obama administration. and it just astound me how the -- their whole platform is based on george bush's policies and this 12 million job creation, again, smoke and mirror. they use this every time they run. george bush ran under he's going to lower taxes, he's going to create jobs. the tea party said they would create jobs and it seems like the same rhetoric over and over and over again. guest: great question, doug. i'm a republican who has been critical of the bush presidency. we funded things like no child left behind, we created prescription drug programs and didn't pay for them and that wasn't helpful and frankly the american people held the republican party accountable for it and threw them out of office so republicans are focused on creating jobs, growing the economy and we're not focused on big spending programs that we know the american people don't want so you have the commitment of republicans that

the gm plant in the last few months of george w. bush's tenure. we've lost some manufacturing jobs. you know, we've had a governor who has had a pretty progressive agenda that hasn't allowed jobs to grow. but i do think that people in wisconsin know that things are getting better that we're turning a corner. our unemployment rate is a little lower than nationally. and i think they understand that this country's headed in the right direction. we're on the right track. we came from a big hole. the president has dug hymn out of this -- himself out of this whole. host: your job and the obama campaign's job more difficult because of the reerecall? guest: i don't think it has an impact one way or the other. host: and so this is mike tate of the wisconsin democratic party joining us and talking about issues when it comes to wisconsin. we track one more call. ohio republican line good morning. caller: yes. i love how obama has taken such pride in saying that he has created so many jobs. there are so many people that are having to work part time jobs or working two -- temporary jobs whateve

of the counties in the tidewater region. you can see it is compared with 2004 when george w. bush won the state. you can see that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? gu

honoring the 9/11 victims to promote the george w. bush political agenda. it offended many of the survivors and first responders. i felt i needed to stand up. >> i never questioned her patriotism. i question your judgment. only 22 people voted against it. every person from wisconsin voted for it, including nancy pelosi. everyone voted for it except 22 people. it bothered me because i was there helping out. if you talk to george pataki and mayor rudy guiliani, they say i was a force of nature because i was up there so often helping people get things. congress did not give the appropriations, but it was not because we did not try. the federal government -- she did not appropriate the money. congress did not appropriate the money. and why they did not get the treatment. bus bay put a restriction in asked who could get it. if we could have given more money out to more people, we would have. not only did she voted against this, she voted against the a ahmadinejad. all except three individuals condemned him. tammy baldwin voted against the sanctions. i don't question their patriotism,.

. $25 trillion tax cuts would make president george w. bush look like a banker. he must have been asleep at the switch. you said like jerry mcguire "show me the money." you are the business guy. see me back after the election. who can take you seriously? here is my budget although it is not. see me about it after the election. the reason is there are only three options. if you want to repeal tax exemptions you have to cut the tax exemptions on the middle- class and governor romney says he will raise those taxes. or you can do what they have always done in just let the deficit explode again. when the economy goes it'll be a problem. or you could just gut the federal budget. gut funding for education. gut the student loan program. i spent $3 billion of your money to separate the human genome. he know how much economic activity it has generated? $790 billion. barack obama wants to raise it. they want to cut its. one thing they have not disavowed is they intend to cut medicaid by 33% over 10 years and get back to the state of ohio. medicaid provides medical coverage to lower income ki

have. tommy thompson, after he left wisconsin, went off to serve in the george w. bush's cabinet. but one of the reasons i think his campaign has so much money, and you see so much outside spending is that he cut this deal on a medicare part d where he made it so that the government cannot negotiate with the prescription drug companies were lower drug prices. i think this is the ultimate payback for tommy, giving such a great giveaway to the prescription drug companies. tommy thompson is not the same guy that people remember from his heyday in 1980's. that may be what is special interest friends are spending money as a reward for tommy for making himself so much wealthier. host: nate, missouri, go ahead. caller: romney is a businessman. whenever he says, he is born to come to the president's way of thinking. you saw that in the last debate. we set up here and talk about, well, about the president and he doesn't have any idea. the president knows that whatever he is going to do, romney is going to copy it. the first debate they said romney won that debate. the seventh or third debate,
